park plaza gardens

Known as one of Winter Park’s “special occasion restaurants,” Park Plaza Gardens consistently scores high in the Zagat ratings. Matt recommends the Risotto Nova Scotia with prawns, lobster, scallops and asparagus on the dinner menu. Besides memorable dinners, the Gardens offer an especially tasty — and reasonable — lunch menu. Those who prefer late-night cocktails, be advised there’s a lively, late happy hour in the café from 9 or 10 p.m. till closing, with drink and appetizer specials.
